John Cusack, Glenn Greenwald, Laura Poitras, John Perry Barlow, Edward Snowden, Daniel Ellsberg, Rainey Reitman and Micah Lee:
It has come to my attention that you have dropped Wikileaks as one of your sponsorships. According to your website, your mission statement is worded as such:
Our Mission. Freedom of the Press Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to helping support and defend public-interest journalism focused on exposing mismanagement, corruption, and law-breaking in government.
If you truly believe in your statement, you would not have dropped Wikileaks and it’s founder Julian Assange as they are being persecuted by a corrupt and law-breaking government (The United States). Instead, you have bowed to their political pressure and have shown that you do not follow your own mission. Julian Assange helped establish your foundation and you choose to treat him like a dirty rag and toss him to the side. You obviously do not appreciate those who have helped you.
On top of this, you have allowed Micah Lee to make derogatory, defaming statements about Assange on Twitter. He deserves to be sued for libel and slander for making such horrific statements, not to mention fired and yet he is still on your board. This shows the public you are unworthy of further donations. I wish you the best in your endeavors, whatever the hell they may be. As for myself and Wikileaks supporters, we will be boycotting you as you are not what you say you are.
